Trump's ignorance

  1. "Asked by Putin about the possibility of extending the treaty capping U.S. and Russian deployment of nuclear warheads — known as New START — Trump reportedly paused to ask his aides what the treaty was, two U.S. officials and one former U.S. official briefed on the call told Reuters."

    If true, this is reason to fire the aides for failure to prepare him for what was a near certain topic during the call.

  4. Trump has no concern for or respect for facts or actual knowledge. Putin just had a freebee to show the world that Trump is a know-nothing lightweight who can and will be played internationally just like he tries to play all his business adversaries in the US. I didn't vote for Hillary, but I now believe we are in for 4 years of embarrassment, cringing, denials of facts, and coverups never seen since Nixon, or probably even worse. This guy is a complete asshole, and the world knows it. As soon as a majority of the US public knows it (I give it six months) he will be impeached.

    Look why should we believe this? Was it vetted? The MSM has been either wrong, dupped or out and out lying about so much lately and simply does not pass the smell test. This sounds like total and complete BS to me. Fake News.

    Here is few pointers on why this is obviously is fake news, you have two officials and on former official, 3 people, briefed on a presumably classified call. (1) why would a non-official be briefed? (2) Why would these people that are that trusted to be told this go out and leak it? (3) The risk is huge and what advantage could people who are so close to this have? If you are gonna leak you leak something really huge not small.(4) And this is the BIG giveaway, and yes there is always a detail that gives it away that it is BS. These people did not actually hear the call...they where briefed. If they where briefed they would been given overall big picture of the conversation not some specific detail about Trump asking his aids questions. If they where in on a conference call with Putin the call they might have a point but there is no way these kinds of details would ever be in a brief. Gotta call BS on this.

    Come one folks all you have to do is use your brains on these so called leaks or weird news stories to figure out it is junk. Remember the story two weeks ago where
    they said had some Russian prostitutes in a hotel, that as also on MNS, oh wait that was also BS. Many of us grew up with Ed Murrow, Walter Cronkite, and Ted Kopple, the old 60 mins and so on. That kind of journalism is long long dead. It takes hard work, intelligence and integrity for real journalism or for honest press. Look what we have today, just random networks that pick up stories of the internet that came from God knows where. There are no journalist anymore, that would take time and money and in the end there is no profit as no one wants real news. We have fake news because that is what we want and what we will pay for. When people complain about "Fake News" what they really mean is that they do not lake the "Fake News" from the other side but they do like their own "Fake News".

If the CNN said the moon was made out cheese would you believe it?

If the CNN had affidavits from the crew that faked the moon landings from a sound stage in Nevada, I (and approximately 40% of the voting public) would definitely believe it.

And yet your Savior wants to increase the space exploration funding. Post-factual America, indeed. As if the facts weren't available to anyone who wants them. It's official - the US general public is now so stupid and so gullible that anyone who wants to take over our country and enslave us will be welcomed in as long as they claim they are here to help, with free Starbucks and Trader Joe's organic kale for all.

And how is a Big Apple developer supposed to know about the provisions of START? The people who elected him know that and don't care. He was elected to drain the swamp, not for his inside knowledge.

The people that mock him lost the election and for 4 years, do not have an opinion that matters.

Fake News ! CNN is just full of shxxt as usual !

Not fake news this time. All the news organizations used to chant Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!! Now they are all chanting Flynn, Flynn, Flynn!.....even Fox News has joined CNN. Looks like Trump is sinking deeper into the swamp.

Anonymous said...

The real issue is why the FBI tapped Flynn's phone and why they leaked his conversations to the liberal press. Both things are illegal.

Some ugly Democrat mole is behind this. Once they find him, he'll be going to go to prison, as he should.

No matter what you think of Trump, and I personally don't like him, the DC swamp needs draining, bad.

No, the REAL issue is what Flynn and his campaign cronies discussed with their Russian contacts. That may be truly a one way ticket to the big house. In classic Trumpian style, the administration is desperately trying to change the subject by pivoting to "leaks."

Anonymous said...

Unless the topic is classified, it's perfectly legal for any American to talk with any Russian about anything. Flynn got the boot for misleading Vice President Pence, nothing he did will send him to "the big house".

Facts matter. You told a flat lie.

So, did some liberal group pay you to spew the lie, or did you make up the lie all on your own, Snowflake?

I guess February 16, 2017 at 9:10 AM never heard of the Logan Act. And BTW, the FBI didn't "tap" Flynn's phone. They had a FISA warrant to surveil electronically the Russian he was talking to (on multiple occasions on the same day). A fact Flynn as former head of the DIA surely knew. Legally Flynn's end of the conversation could not have been collected or maintained unless he was also under a FISA warrant, and if so, the question is why? And also BTW, the FBI didn't "leak to the liberal press," they provided transcripts to many people. Hard to prevent public knowledge when that happens.

IMO, Trump took some nasty shots at the IC during the campaign, and it's payback time. Today's WSJ reports that Trump's daily intel briefings do not contain source and method info (unlike previous Presidents), because they are afraid he'll compromise them. This fight is just beginning, and it stands at IC 1, Trump 0.

The Logan Act is an archaic law that has NEVER been used to prosecute ANYONE, EVER. You liberal nuts dug deep to find that one. In any case, it doesn'apply as intelligence officials have told the liberal press (NPR) that there is no evidence of any criminal wrongdoing in the Flynn transcripts. Note that the IC DID feed the dirty liberal press, and it was not a general release.

So you told another lie and a half-truth, Snowflake.

Hey, maybe the best response to being called (incorrectly, but the guy is nuts) "snowflake" is to respond with "BS Avalanche" which fits him exactly. He thinks even (self-declared) conservatives who disagree with him are "liberals" so what the hell? It can't get any worse than his drivel.

Anonymous said...

You can verify everything I have written, but you won't. Why? liberals are militant about remaining ignorant.

Snowflake is lying when he claims to be a conservative. How do we know? No conservative would spew his lie about how all the Syrians were thoroughly vetted. Outside the liberal echo chamber, conservatives already knew that many Syrians are being reinvestigated because they were let in without proper vetting. No conservative would make the baseless allegation that Flynn would be heading to the big house. No conservative would make the false claim that the IC didn't leak information to the liberal press when they most assuredly did.

By the way, 7:27 PM, you sound an awful lot like you ARE Snowflake.

It's pretty amazing. I had been convinced for many years that liberals in general were the most arrogant, nastiest group of people around. Then February 16, 2017 at 9:53 PM pops out of the woodwork and upsets my entire apple cart. Sheesh. I could say that he's just taking after Trump, but Trump is certainly no conservative. I guess the notion that "anyone who disagrees with me is completely wrong, evil, and must be attacked" is the new substitute for reasoned discussion of issues, for both sides. If so, our country is doomed.

Excuse me but one cannot have a "reasoned" discussion with fascist or Nazis. Even attempting such a discussion normalizes that they are people to have discussion with. You should always attack and fight fascists.

Someone needs to look up the definition of "fascism" and get educated. Obviously too young to have experienced it first hand.

Trump IS a fascist. Look it up and stop telling others to get educated when you clearly are not.

Yes we all know the US has a fascist party and Trump is a card-carrying member. BTW, where can I look up that "Trump IS a fascist"?? And why don't you specify YOUR definition and spend some time justifying why you think it applies to Trump? Too much trouble and too taxing on your preconceptions?

And is you happen to be right, what are YOU going to do about it?? Not your responsibility?

Both sides need more than that. A serious national wake-up call is needed. Unfortunately, it will come, and none of us will like it. But it will shock everyone out of our complacency and nasty partisanship. Pearl Harbor II is coming, but this time nuclear. And not in far-away Hawaii.
